Trent Rockets Women (TRT-W) will be hosting Oval Invincibles Women (OVI-W) in the 9th match of The Hundred Women 2022 tournament at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Wednesday.

Oval Invincibles also suffered a defeat in their last match against Southern Brave after registering a big win against Northern Superchargers in the opening clash.

TRT-W vs OVI-W Probable Top Performers
The probable best batter of the match
The English ace ranks first in ICC T20 all-rounder charts and third in batter’s chart. She was rested for the opening match after featuring in England’s all five 2022 Commonwealth Games this month. She scored 31 runs off 31 balls and took a wicket while conceding just 24 runs but failed to guide her team to a win. Sciver is in great form lately with 104 runs and three wickets in the CWG tournament and 84 runs in three matches against South Africa in the last T20I series.
The probable best bowler of the match
The in-form Australian leg-spinner took four wickets, including a stunning hat-trick, against Manchester Originals in the opening match while conceding just 15 runs. She also contributed with the bat by smashing unbeaten 19 runs off just 9 balls. She was economical against the Phoenix with one wicket for 18 runs in 20 balls but it was not enough for the Rockets to win.
